On Sunday, April 22, 2018, by the invitation of Vicar and Parish Priest, Rev. Archpriest Fr. Zareh Zargarian, the guest celebrant at Holy Trinity Armenian Apostolic Church was the Rev. Archpriest Fr. Parsegh Vanilyan.
The Parish Council members were invited to the Holy Altar and were blessed by Fr. Zargarian and Fr. Vanilyan after which Fr. Zargarian delivered the Sermon of the day.


The Parish Priest, along with the Parish Council, is the administrative authority of the parish administering and directing the affairs and activities of the parish, including the affairs of the subordinate organizations and is custodian of all property which belongs to the parish. A majority of the members of the Parish Council in the presence of the Priest constitute a quorum.

The Parish Assembly elects the Parish Council. They carry out the decisions of the Assembly and present the annual report and financial statement to the Assembly. One of the major duties of the Parish Council is to ensure the proper and regular performance of church services.
